The Cattaraugus County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Despite the brevity of this chapter at just four pages, we consider it essential to the historical record of this area.

The Cattaraugus County chapter from French's Gazetteer of the State of New York (1860). Here is a look at Cattaraugus County a bit over a decade after Mather & Brockett's treatment of the subject.  It's considerably more extensive than Mather & Brockett's treatment.  The localities mentioned in this chapter, most of which are still extant today, are:  Allegany, Five Mile Run, Ashford, East Ashford, Bucktooth, Carrolton, Limestone, Tuna, Cold Spring, Connewango, Rudledge, Axville, Clear Creek, Dayton, West Dayton, Sociality, East Otto, Otto Corners, Ellicottville, Plato, Ash Park, Farmersville, Fairview, Franklinville, Cadiz, Freedom, Sandusky, Elton, Great Valley, Great Valley Station, Peth, Hinsdale, Scotts Corners, Haskel Flat, Humphrey, Humphrey Center, Sugar Town, Ischua, Leon, East Leon, Thompsonville, Little Valley, Little Valley Creek, Lyndon, Elgin, Rawson, Machias, Lime Lake, Mansfield, Eddyville, Napoli, New Albion, Cattaraugus, Olean, Otto, Waverly, Perrysburgh, Versailles, Persia, Gowanda, Portville, Mill Grove, Randolph, East Randolph, South Valley, Onoville, Yorkshire, Yorkshire Corners, Yorkshire Center, and West Yorkshire. 12+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.75.

Hilltop - Yearbook of Randolph (NY) Central School (1963).  An interesting yearbook from a small Western New York state community.  We see a rural school, in a position where new high school graduates were valued, in an area, while becoming depopulated (witness the Greater Jamestown Chamber of Commerce ad imploring grads to stay in the area for bright futures), but in a larger culture where change was beginning.  Before college was over for those so destined they would see the Vietnam war underway, and the phenomenon known as Woodstock.  These graduates, in the words of the well-known curse, have lived in “interesting” times.  A point of interest:  the volume includes photos of all grades, from Kindergarten through the seniors, and the photo reproduction is excellent -- meaning that the quality of the photos in the volume was high.  146++ pages, in PDF format.  Download now for $4.00.

Charities in Cattaraugus County in 1906.  This chapter, taken from volume II of a three volume report of the State Board of Charities, identifies and provides some information about Cattaraugus County charities that were substantial enough to be registered with the State Board.  The material will be of interest to local historians who wish a better picture of charitable institutions in Cattaraugus County a century ago, to genealogists and family historians interested in the people who administered charity back then as well as how any unfortunates housed in these facilities may have lived, and to those who have questions about the now-politicized "safety net" for the unfortunates in our society back in those years.  6++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.50.
